In his new performance Czech media artist Martin Blažíček uses digital sensors and live programming to examine obsolescent relics; aged 16mm projectors, lenses, stroboscopic lights and pre-cinematic optical devices. Using a challenging combination of old and new media he creates a highly expressive "filmless movie" composed of redundant machine noises and violent optical attacks. This time, Blažíček will perform together with Michal Zbořil. Warning: strobe lights are used during this performance.
